  1. All content must:
  • Be your own work
  • Be legal, truthful, ethical and honest
  • Conform to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) guidelines – see below
  • Be informative and helpful rather than advertorial.

  1. Copyright remains with the author.

 

  1. If accepted, articles will be published in the FSS’s newsletter, on the website blog and Facebook page.

 

  1. There is no fixed length that the articles must conform to although longer articles should be split into a series for publication in successive newsletters whilst the full article will be published on the website blog when the last of the series is published in the newsletter. The Newsletter Editor can advise.

 

  1. Articles should be submitted in a Word document and in a state where little editing is required. Regrettably we do not offer a full proof-reading service and articles may be refused with suggestions if a rewrite is required.

ASA Guidelines

The ASA is the self-regulatory organisation of the advertising industry in the United Kingdom. Their guidelines ensure that all advertising is responsible and legal and they can investigate complaints from anyone who believes an advertisement is irresponsible or dishonest. Whilst the ASA oversee advertising, website content and newsletter articles can be seen as promotional material and so it is useful to consider these guidelines when assessing the content we use.

In order to keep your content within the ASA guidelines:

  • Only make claims if they can be backed up by scientific research. Therefore stating that you can successfully solve problems, improve the health, wealth, love life, happiness or other circumstances of clients, sell houses, break curses, banish evil spirits, or guarantee specific results, should all be avoided because they are likely to be impossible to prove.
  • Do not seek to deter people from seeking conventional help or imply that feng shui is the only cure for a particular circumstance/issue.
  • Be very wary of attributing health improvements to feng shui or associated practices. In particular, it is an offence (1939 Cancer Act) to suggest that you can treat, prescribe for, or offer advice on the treatment of cancer.
  • Unproven beliefs about the effect of feng shui may be acceptable if expressed as a matter of opinion – eg ‘in my opinion…’ or ‘proponents of feng shui believe that…’
  • In general, stick to facts and advice rather than claims that may be inflammatory and difficult to prove.
